BYUtv will air a docudrama Thursday night featuring composer George Frideric Handel and his journey toward composing the crowning piece of his career, "Messiah."

Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning actress Jane Seymour will narrate the feature as it explores Handel's life.

“So many people have heard or sung Handel’s 'Messiah,' but few know the story behind the making of this timeless work,” said Derek Marquis, managing director of BYUtv, in a press release.

Handel's Messiah will premiere on BYUtv on Nov. 26 at 7 p.m. MST.
